De Dulle Teve is brewed in the tradition of a Belgian Triple. Its high density stems from large amounts of pale malt increased with pale candi sugar in the brew kettle. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned.

De Dulle Teve keeps two to three years without major changes in taste. Further maturing, up to 10 years, will cause it to darken a little and lose some of its bitterness. The bittering of about 30 IBU is due to Goldings hops in the brew kettle.

I didn’t really enjoy the first half of the bottle. But after pouring the second half into the glass, with all the sedimenty stuff and unfiltered bits, it was rich, complex, and remarkably textured - - the color was layered in the glass. I think next time I’ll buy six of them, let them stand upright for an hour, then pour off the top 2/3 of each bottle into one decanter, pour off the bottom portions into another decanter, then make them both part of a tasting along with other tripels. I know for sure what will win.

Shark_Pants (499) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2015
Hazy orange pour with large tight white head that lasts a long time. Smells of tart green apples, apricots, some clove, some floral hop and lightly earthy yeast notes. The taste has a bit of hop and acid bite at the front end, then floral honey, apricot, light apple, fresh multigrain bread, musty yeast. Very good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Exceptionally crafted tripel - many are overly sweet but this one has excellent complexity and balance.

Linnet (1389) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2015
Fruity, esthery, spicy, ripe prunes, alcohol, lots of yeast and floral hops. Hazy golden colour, medium white head. Noticably sweet, lightly bitter, lots of esthery notes, ABV evident, but well integrated, Fullbodied, lively carbonation, sweetish finish.

SinH4 (1396) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2015
Hazy orange color with big white head. Aroma is apples, citrusy, apricots, toffee, candied sugar, very yeasty. Taste is with tart fruits (hints of balsamico even!), quite a sting at the beginning, again toffee and spices, with a boozy, warming finish. High carbonation. A quite complex Tripel, driven very much by fruit esters and sweetness, the tart sting at the beginning is really adding a lot of character. One of the better Tripels I’ve had.

Pours murky light orange, explosive head no matter how careful the pour. Banana, honey, booze on the nose. Taste abounds in yeast and miscellaneous esters, banana, apricot, grass, pepper, clove. Very assetive tripel, quite good.

330 ml. bottle. Labeled April 2017 on cap. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with a massive, frothy off white head. The aroma is bready with some rather strong apple and pear esters. Dusty yeast. The flavor is strongly alcoholic with honey, orange and apple. Some hints of peppery yeast notes in the finish with more alcohol. Full bodied but well attenuated. Fruit, honey and alcohol stand out. Pretty good, although not really my favorite style.

Steve_0 (3584) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Huge gusher - murky orange pour with a big pillowy white head and good lacing. Big spicy yeasty, zesty, bready, peppery, herby, somewhat grassy, and tangy aroma. Taste is tangy, herbal, straw, black pepper, clove, yeasty, and doughy with a big spicy finish. Neodymium body with high carbonation. Pretty good, but a bit aggressive.
